The definition of ‘calendar date’ is wrong. It reads ‘Gregorian year month date coordinate or Gregorian day of year coordinate or year weekday coordinate’. A calendar date should indicate a specific time interval, but a Gregorian day of year coordinate does not. It appears that the definition confuses ‘Gregorian day of year coordinate’ with ‘Gregorian year day coordinate’.
Recommendation: change the definition to mention ‘Gregorian year day coordinate’ rather than ‘Gregorian day of year coordinate’. Clarify the intent of ‘calendar date’ by adding “General Concept: absolute time coordinate”, and by adding a Description such as “A calendar date indicates a specific time interval of duration ‘day’.”

Disposition: Resolved — DTV 1.0b2
Correct the definition of calendar date (actually its successor 'Gregorian date') to include the ‘Gregorian year day coordinate’. Merge the other corrections to ‘calendar date’ with the changes to calendar date in Issue 17425.
See Issue 17425.
